The Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce unveiled its new Government Affairs Process and Policy at Tuesday’s annual elected officials’ luncheon. By formalizing their government affairs strategy, the business community will be able to communicate with local, state and federal elected officials in a more timely and effective manner. In their words, they will be able to “create, maintain and elevate win-win solutions between business interests and public officials.”
Congratulations to Maral Akridge, the Chamber’s president, for accomplishing this important task and for holding such a successful event. Based on yesterday’s turnout from congressional offices, state legislators, county commissioners and local elected officials, you already have the ear of key policy makers. Way to go! WakeMed is proud to sponsor organizations like the Wake Forest Chamber of Commerce as your efforts are truly making a difference throughout our community.
